Braille Training Program.

Under this priority we provide grants for the establishment or continuation of projects that provide—

(2) In-service or pre-service training in the use of braille, the importance of braille literacy, and methods of teaching braille to youths and adults who are blind; orShow citation box

(3) Activities to promote knowledge and use of braille and nonvisual access technology for blind youth and adults through a program of training, demonstration, and evaluation conducted with leadership of experienced blind individuals, including the use of comprehensive, state-of-the-art technology.

I hope some people jump on this opportunity to create, or continue to create, new resources in UEB or Nemeth. Three groups will be awarded between $105,000 and $110,000.
